If true, the Obama administration spying on GOP candidates last year is an ‘enormous’ story, says Sen. Rand Paul.
That the outgoing Obama administration spied on the persons within the Trump campaign is not new news.
However, in an interview last week on Fox Business Network, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) raised the rather alarming possibility that the Obama administration may have also spied on other GOP candidates as well—including himself.
Earlier this week, Paul said reporters have told him they have evidence he was a target of Obama administration spying.
This is the first time that Paul mentioned another senator is also concerned about the Obama administration’s surveillance.
He said if this proves to be true, it’s a much bigger story than any allegations about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the presidential election.
“It’s about your own government spying on the opposition party,” Paul said. “That would be enormous if it’s true.”
If the rumors do prove to be true, then, as Sen. Paul stated, it would be an ‘enormous’ story.
